The Sandy Beach Lodge & Resort makes a remarkable transition each fall as families that flock to cabins to enjoy summer weeks of lakeside living return home, to work and school. In their place, guests seeking a quieter, more reflective experience arrive to savour the warm days and cooler nights of autumn.

Summer and shoulder-season visitors alike return to Sandy Beach year after year to take advantage of a rare opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of daily living and modern technology. No televisions or dishwashers here, but don’t panic—there IS internet access! But who needs them with the beach only steps away, an abundance of recreation facilities and absolutely no highway traffic to raise the blood pressure?

For more than 60 years Sandy Beach Lodge has welcomed guests with many improvements while maintaining the original charm from years past. Within the spring and fall months the resort becomes an ideal location to host special events. Conventions and retreats, weddings and reunions, can all be accommodated within facilities sure to be as memorable as the events themselves. Staff is happy to assist with recommendations regarding all the necessary details and local vendors available to make your event a great success from beginning to end.

Enjoy the outdoors with a dip in the heated pool or relax in the gazebo hot tub overlooking Okanagan Lake. Paddle out on the lake, stick your toes into the sand or enjoy a game of tennis, ping-pong, shuffleboard or bocce but be sure to leave time to enjoy the magnificent sunsets that are sure to take your breath away.

A successful corporate event is enriched when participants have the opportunity to meet in a casual environment that encourages social interaction and total relaxation. Sandy Beach Lodge & Resort offers exactly that, in meeting rooms or quiet corners, patio and beach settings, all a stone’s throw from the magnificent Okanagan Lake and Naramata Bench wine region. Relax, rejuvenate and breathe the fresh, clean air. What are you waiting for?
